"An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up... and the carnage has only just begun!"

Sweeney Todd is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.

Under the direction of Dr. Eric H. Tucker, the School of Music produces a full-length opera during the spring semester, featuring the Central Michigan University Symphony Orchestra. Unlike larger institutions in the state of Michigan, undergraduate, rather than graduate students perform the overwhelming majority of the leading roles in our productions.

Students at Central Michigan University have several different opportunities to perform in opera and musical theatre. During the fall semester, The School of Music presents an Opera Gala which features music from the operatic literature as well as the American Musical Theatre. Additionally, The School of Music, in conjunction with the School of Theatre, produces a fully staged musical theatre production each fall semester. Recent collaborative shows include, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Into the Woods, Chicago, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, A Little Night Music, Pal Joey, Urinetown, Little Women, Kiss Me, Kate and Secret Garden.

The mission of the opera program here at Central Michigan University is to prepare students for the professional world of singing. To that end, we bring in professional stage directors and coaches to work with our students as part of the production process. 

Recent opera theatre productions include: Pirates of Penzance, La Bohème, Don Giovanni, The Mikado, Die Fledermaus, The Old Maid and the Thief,The Marriage of Figaro, and The Magic Flute.
